Navigating AML Rules in Asia-Pacific
Asia-Pacific is home to over 40 different regulators and varying complex approaches to Anti- Money Laundering regulation and client due diligence obligations.
The increasing costs of client onboarding and AML compliance is reflected in the enhanced regulatory frameworks introduced by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) and the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).
Moreover, the introduction of beneficial ownership registers in certain jurisdictions adds an additional layer of regulatory and reputational risk for financial institutions.
Rigorous Approach Required to Comply with Asia-Pacific AML
Global financial institutions need to ensure they stay consistently compliant with AML regulations throughout the APAC region or face severe reputational and financial penalties.
This involves understanding your client, identifying sources of wealth and defining ultimate beneficial ownership, while solving multiple regulations and compliance rules simultaneously.
Forward-thinking financial organizations must adopt a rigorous approach to AML compliance to future-proof against evolving regulatory requirements.
